A recent survey by the Kentucky Retail Federation concluded that December 23 will be the busiest shopping day of the holiday season, surpassing Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It's hoping to avoid the web snafus it saw a year ago, while also catering to shoppers who want to go back and forth from the stores to online.

Shopping online also allows the customer to price check while browsing the product options, ensuring they aren't overpaying or falling into a Black Friday marketing trap.

Best Buy stores will close at 1 a.m. on Friday and reopen at 8 a.m. on Black Friday, remaining open until 10 p.m.

Some of the top stores that customers will find open for business will be Best Buy, Target, Walmart, Kohl's, Macy's, Meijer, Old Navy, Toys R Us, Walgreens, and Sears.

Target will open their doors on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 24, at 6 p.m.to kick off Target's Black Friday deals.

Doorbuster deals are already available online. In the past, doorbusters were only at the store.

"Whoever is open, they'll just lift up their gates", Thomas said.

The Black Friday 2016 online sales are underway since the early morning hours.

"I think our sales are going to go great", he added, as he showed off some of the items Walmart is selling as Black Friday specials.

Arsene Wenger: 'No reason for Arsenal to panic'
I think we have to wait for the draw because if you look at all of the groups, you can not really guess if it is good or bad. Recall that Arsenal last won the EPL title at the 2003/2004 season when the club finished unbeaten.

Samsung will be offering deals at their stores on Friday 25 November.

Probably the biggest trend is that it's no longer just about Black Friday, the day.

Well, the best way to get an answer to that question is to contact the retailer you are interested in directly, or by visiting the retailer's website.

But this shift in Black Friday shopping hasn't been all good. Some retailers may have better offers on before the day, knowing that the idea of a Black Friday discount will entice people to buy.

And how - checking off items early, or holding out for better deals.

You'll also see some more incentives to download a store's app. Look for the apps that work well for you.

Game will be having their Black Friday sale for one day only. Plenty of other retailers is offering iPad deals though so be sure to watch all of them.
